‘MTV Movies and TV Awards show 2021′ observed the Disney+/Marvel Studios’ sitcom ‘WandaVision’ as the big winner on Sunday night (local time) during the ‘2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted by Leslie Jones.
‘Wanda Vision’ won four awards during the ceremony, including best series and best performance in a TV show for Elizabeth Olsen, who called Marvel fans the “best.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, the winners were announced in a ceremony that aired live from the Palladium in Los Angeles, with Leslie Jones serving as host.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, after a montage in which she spoofed various shows, Jones came out onstage in a T-shirt that read “You have to choose joy” and sparkly black leggings along with Nike high-tops. However, she had walked the red carpet earlier in a bright red strapless gown with a thigh-high slit.
During the award ceremony, Olsen was a double winner, taking home the award for the best fight along with Kathryn Hahn for ‘WandaVision’.
The host of the award ceremony -Jones- also won the award for best comedic performance for ‘Coming 2 America.’ She accepted the award in a flowing yellow gown surrounded by dancers inspired by the performances in the film.

Presenter Yara Shahidi accepted on his behalf, saying the actor’s “impact is everlasting and we are eternally grateful for the ways his presence and his art have changed the world. We love you and we miss you.”
